A magic Resort for everyone to enjoy the facility and surrounds.

Everything at the Resort was fantastic including the staff who went out of their way to ensure that we had a wonderful holiday.


It was very nice.

Foods was generally satisfied. Buffet restorant (Five Sails) served excellent local foods but those of Italian restorant (Ferdinando) was very poor.
